San Bruno

Huntington Park

One of San Bruno’s first “suburban” neighborhoods, Huntington Park is as popular now as it was in 1950, both for newcomers and its long-time residents. Located within the original two-mile-square city boundaries, the neighborhood that was once sparsely populated farmland is now a neatly maintained, orderly pre- and post-war subdivision whose suburban feel belies its pedestrian-friendly location.

Bordered by Jenevein Avenue to the north, Lomita to the south, El Camino Real to the east and Highway 280 to the west, Huntington Park is a large neighborhood who residents enjoy easy access to downtown, sunnier weather than experienced by its western neighbors and the city’s crown jewels of green space, San Bruno Park and Junipero Serra County Park. Huntington Park addresses generally have WalkScores in the 70-80 range. San Bruno’s only public intermediate school, Parkside, is located in Huntington Park, as is El Crystal Elementary School and the San Bruno Senior Center. For most of Huntington Park, the San Bruno Caltrain station is around a 20-25-minute walk away.

If Huntington Park is typical of post-war Peninsula neighborhoods, it’s also typical of the care taken of this neighborhood by their residents. Here you will find manicured lawns and colorful gardens nestled into 5,000 square-foot lots and well-maintained homes. Some of them have been expanded; most have been remodeled; a few have been replaced. One of San Bruno’s first “suburban” neighborhoods, Huntington Park is as popular now as it was in 1950, both for newcomers and its long-time residents. For this reason, finding available properties here can be challenging. Activity is brisk -- properties that come onto the market usually sell quickly -- and the local median has passed $1 million. Properties toward the northern border of Huntington Park are more likely to be found for less than that figure (and range up to approximately $1.2 million), while single-family homes at the southern end of the neighborhood can range between $1.1 and $1.4 million.

There are two major east-west roads running through Huntington Park, Jenevein Avenue and Crystal Springs Road. They are two of San Bruno’s oldest roads, and each comes with its own unique history.

At one time, Crystal Springs Road was one of only two east-west streets (Sneath Lane was the other) leading from downtown San Bruno to Skyline Drive. Crystal Springs met Skyline not at San Andreas Lake, as it does today, but at the towns of Laguna and Crystal Springs, which had grown up around an old resort, also called Crystal Springs. In the late 1880s, the Spring Valley Water Company, which had spent some 30 years purchasing property in Laguna and Crystal Springs, built the Crystal Springs Dam, which flooded the resort and both towns, creating Laguna and San Andreas Lakes, the latter being what you now see when you come to the end of Crystal Springs Road.

Jenevein Avenue is named after a San Bruno pioneer, August Jenevein, who came to San Bruno from Loraine, France, in 1874. By 1879, Jenevein was managing Uncle Tom’s Cabin, a popular roadhouse located at the corner of El Camino Real and San Bruno Avenue. The waystation, also known as the “14 Mile House,” had been in operation since 1849, changing its name in 1871 when it was purchased by its then-cook, an ex-slave named Thomas Rolle.

Jenevein operated the restaurant/bar/stable until 1905, then established the Junction House, a French-style hotel, among other businesses. So significant was his impact on early San Bruno that the street comprising the border between Huntington Park and Mills Park bears his name.
